#GrowAP

A Campaign for Amethyst Place

The time for expansion is now! We are thrilled to announce the #GrowAP campaign. After years of increasing need in the community and much time spent exploring our options, we are finally making expansion a reality. 

Over 40 families are consistently waiting for a safe home to reunify and overcome homelessness. Within these families are 76 children, most of whom are separated from their mom until a spot at Amethyst Place opens. That wait is taking a year or longer

The time to grow is now, pandemic or otherwise. We were fortunate enough to secure land right next to our current campus thanks to the very generous support of donors. It is enough space to build 34 more units – nearly doubling our capacity. Our plan is to build 22 apartments, 12 townhomes, and greenspace for families to play. To fund this $14,100,000 project, we applied for low-income housing tax credits and will raise the remainder through a capital campaign. If we are awarded tax credits, construction will begin in summer of 2022.

Even with that funding, we still need supporters like you to help us bring this to fruition. Your support helps us keep our current operations strong while also helping us build homes for 34 new families.

Our Vision

To transform 1.28 acres of blighted, vacant land into a family community and neighborhood asset.

The Site Design

We will add 34 units of affordable housing, doubling our current capacity. The site will also have outdoor community space, a community room for programming, a fitness center, and offices for expanded staffing.
